    Is there a way to transfer all the 'saved' wireless networks from my current laptop to my new one? I go to many different offices and have probably about 50 wireless networks 'stored' on my laptop. Everytime I go back to that office it just automatically connects. I would hate to have to try and find all these passwords again. Is there a way to transfer all this to my new laptop?

    thanks.

    Looks like that just does one network at a time. Is there a way to grab all of the wireless networks that are saved?? I would hate to have to do them all seperately.

    Unfortunately I don't think there is. I think it's a matter of exporting them to a thumb drive and running them on the new laptop.

    It shouldn't be that big of a chore. How many wireless configs do you have?

    Bummer, I have at least 50 from all the different offices I go to.

    I bet you it only takes you 15 minutes to do it. Did you try to copy the config for only 1 of them?
